Serena was a New York Times best-seller. It named a Best Book of the Year by more than a dozen national publications, including the New York Times, Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Chicago Tribune, and Miami Herald. It was made into a major Hollywood movie starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. Serena's husband is married to a man who is logging the Great Smoky Mountains. Ron Rash told me that he hoped that reading this book would help people realize that those who would destroy the land are equally willing to exploit the people.
